Some new photos have leaked from the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (via SuperHero Hype), which is currently filming in New York City, and they reveal a startling cameo appearance from a familiar face in the beloved franchise: Judith Hoag, the original April O’Neil.
Hoag played the intrepid reporter in the 1990 feature film debut of the heroes in the half-shell. Here, she appears to be speaking to the new O’Neil, Megan Fox, in what could easily amount to a cameo appearance. That, or she has a bigger role that we’ve not been made privy to at this time.
Regardless of the size of the role, this is cool news for fans of the original TMNT films, and perhaps a sign that director David Green (Earth to Echo) is more beholden to the bygone era of the Turtles than Jonathan Liebesman was.
We’ll know for sure when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 hits theaters on June 3rd, 2016.
